Transportation systems play an integral role in helping the National Park Service achieve its mission of providing safe and enjoyable access to our national treasures. Today, the NPS manages approximately 5,500 miles of paved roads, 7,000 miles of unpaved roads, 1,400 bridges, 60 tunnels, 100 transit systems operating in 65 units (includes 37 interpretive tours), and 17,800 miles of trails (5,000 miles are paved). Transportation professionals work to protect park these resources and provide access by planning, implementing, and managing innovative transportation systems.
